This was the second stop on our Garden Route holiday and I was really impressed by the Abalone Guest House.
The welcome was lovely and the whole place was really homely. We had room 1 which has amazing sea views from 2 balconies, great decor and was very comfortable. We could sit on the balcony and watch the whales swim by.
It's a good half hour walk into the centre of Hermanus but the coastal path is a fantastic walk and not strenuous. Whale watching boats go out regularly and we were lucky enough to get some close sightings of humpbacks, southern right whales and bryde whales.
Breakfast was lovely, shame it was a bit chilly to sit out on the terrace, but a great start to each day. Lovely place to stay overall and highly recommended.
